We went to the Butterfly Park & then here but it was closed. They are closed on Monday so we chose today, Wednesday but they were already closed at 2pm. Spain doesn't cater to tourists. I guess that works for them but it is odd!...More

For us this was an unexpected site on the Costa del Sol. Worth a visit to view exterior and interior. Peaceful setting.

situated right next to the Butterfly park, it's well worth the visit, if only for the magnificent views over the coast

We went originally on a Monday but it was closed so had to return on Wednesday. Worth two euros admission. Like a fairytale castle. Views fab too. Walked down from the church in pueblo. 10 minute walk.
